Why Dmitry Ulyanov chose Vermont

I was looking for a perfect vacation property for over two years and when I saw this place I immediately fell in love with it. I had to have a place that was not too far away from Connecticut and southern Vermont was ideal. It had to be completely private and 100 acres give you that. It is totally private but at the same time close enough to Ski mountains, lakes, restaurants and stores. I wanted to use the place during winter and summer vacations and I do that and still cannot decide what season I like best. Honestly, I like my Vermont vacation place better than my permanent home in Connecticut.

Beautiful Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this expansive property in Newfane. While we went for hikes at nearby sites (like Mt. Snow), it was great to also have a hiking trail on the property. Throw in a pool, hot tub, tennis court, fire pit, and game house with billiard and ping-pong tables, and there are activities for everyone. The handyman, Bill, is very helpful and a great guy to boot.

A few words to let you know what to expect: (i) because of the remote location, the WiFi service is not the greatest (and I could not get cell phone service, though my wife did) and you have to travel on dirt roads for the last couple of miles; (ii) if you're going during swimming season, make sure before you arrive that the heater has been turned on in the pool (which is large and clean); (iii) not all of the bedrooms are air-conditioned, but there is a big fan that cools the house and it tends to cool off at night.

Most of all, if you want beautiful views and a feeling that you're far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is a great location.

meeting house

  • 5 of 5

WE had our division meetings here with 12 people. The meetings after the meetings were great. The game room provided a great atmosphere some played pool some ping pong and others just hung out a the bar. The back deck was nice for eating out doors and the pool is heated. The area between the house and game room was great for playing corn hole and cam jam. Don't forget to bring wood for the fire pit and you will want to save your presentations on your computers as the wifi is slow and there is little to no cell service.

Great golf trip

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a property with great outdoor space to host our group of 16 for our annual golf excursion. Dmitry's property was exactly what we were looking for to unwind after golf. The property was beautifully landscaped, had amazing mountain views, the pool was clean and refreshing, nice fire pit area and had plenty of things for us to do while on the property (i.e. hot tub, tennis court, basketball hoop, pool table and ping pong). Dmitry was an excellent host and very responsive. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great house for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week together in beautiful Vermont. The house sits on a picture perfect property overlooking the mountains. The view from the pool was outstanding. All of the amenities described were as advertised. We had a large family group of varying ages and there was something for everyone. Dmitry was very responsive and helpful. If we had to say one thing to improve on would be to have standing fans for the common areas that don't have ac for those few but hot days. We would definitely stay at this house again and would recommend it highly!

Homey Large Property

  • 4 of 5

This property is very comfortable. It is fully equipped for a large party and the feeling is that you are staying at a friends place. Dmitry is a very welcoming host and check on guests regularly to make sure we are enjoying and no issues arose.

The main house has 6 bedrooms 3 1/2 baths and our party of 13 slept in this part of the house. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs and 2 downstairs. The rooms downstairs are fresher however need more light. We were unlucky to get some warm days and the house only has a/c in 3 of the upstairs rooms. No a/c in the common areas or other rooms. I guess this is only an issue one or two months out of twelve.The game room together with a bath and extra room are separate (but very close): we used it for recreation only. The game room is super equiped and our teenagers (and dads) loved it! The bedroom in the game room is huge and fits many people, but we found it extremely warm (in July) and bright.

We ran into 2 maintenance issues : one with the stove (which was fixed by Dmitry's handyman - he was there 30 minutes after we called reporting the problem !) and the sauna which only worked half of our stay period.

The warm jacuzzi outside was fun for all ages! The pool is big and clean however our kids felt the water was too cold so no long playtime in the pool.

The house has plenty of towels and bed sheets however we wished these were newer. We also reccommend that the duvets have replaceable covers changed between guests.

Other guests report the house is a bit 70's or 80's and this is true however this did not bother us, however we believe the house needs to be a bit upgraded (wallpapers, wall paintings, carpets).

We hired extra cleaning and the ladies who came to help us were both great and helpful.

Overall this is a wonderful property for a family vacation and Dmitry is the perfect host.
